try to watch this one:
http://archive.org/details/Gumbasia

not only is there the stupid "thumbnail" blinkie going on over there on the left side of the page, but there's some idiotic and crappily-rendered "film chest" blinking logo wanking off in the top right corner of the page. How the hell do you expect someone to ACTUALLY WATCH THE FILM if you're going to go so far out of your way to distract their attention? This retarded design was barely acceptable ten years ago when you started doing it, but for pete's sake, it's time to cut it out.

If you're too attached to your precious thumbnails to shitcan them, at the very least make them stop their attention whoring when a video is playing.

I can recommend the Opera web browser which lets you turn off all this kind of stuff: animated GIFs, Javascript, sounds and plugins and on a site-by-site basis if you wish.

AvogadrosNumnuts,
If you hover your cursor over the player screen you may notice a toolbar that appears. On the far right of the toolbar is a box (screen) icon. Clicking that icon will enlarge the video to full screen and allow you to watch things without distractions.
If you have a moment, please review other comments made on this site and moderate your descriptive language accordingly. Or strive to become more creative and entertaining.

What Mr Cranky should have said:

"What kind of moron doesn't know how to make a video fullscreen!?"
